Minor punctuation[edit]

It isn't a big deal. I will fix this if you don't but could you please place the citations after the punctuation. Otherwise thanks for working on a Queensland national park article as many are little more than a stub. It is refreshing to see a new user add material with full and proper references. - Shiftchange (talk) 03:59, 12 April 2013 (UTC)


Sorry, I pushed save instead of preview on accident before I had finished my article, I have heaps more to add. If there are any more really obvious errors, I would really appreciate it if you can give it a once over once I've finished and let me know if anything else needs changing. And it's good to know that the references should go after the punctuation - I'm just used to assignment style. Cheers. Ksnordstrand (talk) 04:14, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

It is perfectly okay to add significant new content in multiple saves. Yes, I and hopefully others will go over your work. If you would like to know of some standards you might want to aim for I suggest checking the B class criteria once you have added your work. - Shiftchange (talk) 04:20, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
OK, thanks for the help. Once I have got all the information in then I will check that out and make sure it is up to standard. I'm definitely still trying to learn my way through all the different pages and tools so sometimes there is an information overload. :)Ksnordstrand (talk) 04:26, 12 April 2013 (UTC)

I suspected something wasn't up to scratch when you mentioned others not editing for the purposes of your assessment. I think its a good idea to get educational institutions involved but it has to be done carefully as this Toronto professor recently discovered. - Shiftchange (talk) 01:47, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

That's an interesting article, I myself have been frustrated and wonder how many other of my classmates have run into the same issues, because I feel certain that for most of us this would be the first time that we have contributed to wikipedia. I was actually a bit concerned about issues with plagiarism, say if someone had made additions without me noticing then I copy all the article including the other peoples contributions, and then submitted it to uni as my own. But I am making efforts to avoid that and I think the faster I finish it the less time there is for that to arise! Ksnordstrand (talk) 02:06, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Just in case you weren't aware, all your contributions can be accessed via the Contributions linked at the top right of a Wikipedia page once you are logged in or via the User Contributions link which appears under the Toolbox menu down the left hand side when viewing any User page. - Shiftchange (talk) 05:09, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
